“We had been trying to raise the funds for a performing arts center in our high school for fifteen years. The school district asked us to raise $750,000; if we could accomplish this they would take the idea to referendum. We began the campaign with 100 Extraordinary Women and got 140 women to pledge $140,000 in a few short months. We were amazed! This started our fund raising efforts, more than $750,000 was raised and the referendum passed. The Performing Arts Center will be open in 2017; women in our community led the way.”
